11 May 2013 / 3 years 5 months ago

Fala Chen’s (陳法拉) decision to end her management contract with TVB has inspired Grace Wong (王君馨) to consider leaving TVB as well. Grace hoped to utilize her dancing skills and pursue a music career instead. According to an article in Popular Asians, growing up in New York, it was always Grace’s dream to work in the Hong Kong entertainment industry. She entered the industry after winning the 2007 Miss Hong Kong first runner-up title. Portraying minor roles in TVB dramas, Grace became well known for her wholesome image and strong religious beliefs. Grace also impressed audiences with her dancing skills after winning the Dancing Queen title in Strictly Come Dancing . Participating in the dancing program not only brought Grace greater recognition, but also sparked her dream to become a singer. Finding music to be a fulfilling platform to express her thoughts, Grace recently started writing her own songs. In a phone interview, Grace admitted that she is disappointed in her career prospects as an actress and is re-evaluating her future. Grace said, “All along, there have been music companies seeking me out. I am considering which music company is suitable for me and my image. Many singers often sing melancholy songs. I wish the [music message] to be positive, but it doesn’t have, to be about [Christianity].‘ Grace admitted that she will consider her future options carefully, and there is a possibility that she will not renew her management contract with TVB. Grace also found Fala Chen’s recent decision to end her TVB management contract and enroll in a New York summer course to be inspiring. Grace said, “I’ve been in the industry for six years. As Fala said, it’s time for self-improvement.‘
